You will need to restore the files from the Chest to a new location- and exclude that location from avast! scans so you can edit the files and remove the iFrame hack.

You need to find out where the files were infected- on the server or on your computer.

A HTML file infector would be the suspect- a virus which adds iFrame links to malware on any HTML files it finds.

Contact your web host if you think your web pages were infected on the server- it may be due to their software being out of date and vulnerable or their server being infected.
